From The Archives
Approximately seventy years ago, Mike Gerber, Rob Weisberg and I did a 20-page parody of the Wall Street Journal. From a certain point of view, the endeavor was a catastrophe, since it crushed us financially, physically and morally. But from another point of view it was a success, since I still think it was pretty damn funny.
UPDATE: I was wrong. The introductory page is there, but the excerpt itself is still missing. So I'm sorry to say you can't see the parody, unless you break into my apartment and rummage around in the closet.Posted at December 11, 2004 05:57 PM | TrackBack
